Beltangady, Mar 18: After the district administrations of Dakshina Kannada and Chikkamagaluru took opposing stands in respect of allowing heavy vehicles to move on Charmadi Ghat road (national highway 73), people were confused on Wednesday March 17.
Even though the works on the highway were incomplete, Chikkamagaluru district deputy commissioner passed an order allowing movement of heavy vehicles on Charmadi Ghat road. On the basis of this order, several Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation buses and trucks started to move on this road. Thereafter, Dakshina Kannada deputy commissioner Dr Rajendra K V, spoke to his Chikkamagaluru counterpart, K S Ramesh, and told him that works on some culverts were not complete and if heavy vehicles are allowed now, the curing work might get damaged.
As such, the vehicular traffic was suspended. It is likely that the heavy vehicles will be allowed after a gap of two weeks.
